OCEC is happy to inform members and followers that an agreement for the procurement and maintenance of the Gunn's HiIl Wind Farm turbines has been signed between Prowind Canada and Senvion SE (formerly REpower/Suzlon).
The ten MM92 turbines will together have a capacity of 18 MW, enough to power ~6,500 homes in Oxford. The towers will have a hight of 100 meter and will be located in the Township of Norwich, just south of Woodstock, Ontario.
The turbine blades will be sourced from Senvion’s own blade production facility in Welland, Ontario that currently employs about 130 people. The turbine towers will also be manufactured in Ontario. The delivery of the turbines is planned for 2015.
